New hammock build.

#1

Post by Idaho Hanger » Wed Nov 25, 2015 9:17 am

Built this hammock yesterday. It's gray 1.9 outer, lime green 1.0 HyperD inner with a pad sleeve, gray bug net, dual zippers so you can have a set on each side for UQ adjustment when the retractable bug netting is in use. Cinch buckle suspension with 14' straps because we run into big trees fairly often.

Very nice, does the bugnet come off (or is it stored under one end)? any close up shots of each end of zippers? Adding bug nets is on my winter to do list.
thanks

The bug net does not come off. I wanted two sets of zippers so I could have one set on each side, 4 sliders total. Pretty sure if you want it to be removable you're limited to two sliders. Bug net stores in a stuff sack that hangs from the ridgeline when not in use. All you have to do is figure out where you want the zipper to meet, which is where the stuff sack will be. The zipper then follows the full perimeter of the hammock and meets where ever you want it to. I ended mine under the cap at the foot end. If you go with only 2 sliders you could add the appropriate zipper stops and make it removable.

That's a nice hammock! I haven't made one with a integrated bugnet yet.
